A Relational View on Services, Contracts, Trust, Value, and RiskSpeaker: Giancarlo Guizzardi – Bolzano, Italy
Topic(s): Information Systems, Search, Information Retrieval, Database Systems, Data Mining, Data Science
The Relationship construct is one of the most fundamental constructs in the conceptual modeling/knowledge engineering toolbox.
In this talk, I present a novel ontological theory of relationships as object-like entities. According to this theory, and in contrast with the interpretation of relationships as facts or events, relationships can
qualitatively change while maintaining their identity, and can be characterized by having both essential and accidental properties. Moreover, I demonstrate that this view allows for a proper representation of complex (and irreducibly relational) phenomena such as Services, Contracts, Trust, Value, and Risk.
